442gh.com can exclusively reveal the 2019/2020 Ghana Leagues will cost the Ghanaian tax payer over 12 million dollars with the Ghana Football Association calling on the Ministry of Youth and Sports to fund the amount.
A communique cited by 442gh to the Ministry of Youth and Sports says the Ghana Football Association have been unable to secure sponsorship from Corporate Ghana who are unwilling to fund the activities of the FA.
The Ghana FA says its reviewed budget for all the Leagues including the Premier league, the National division one league, and the National Women’s league will cost 62,931,771 Ghana Cedis.
A release from Ghana FA earlier gave timelines to the Leagues which is expected to start in December 2019 to June 2020, with the premier league starting on December 21.
The new Ghana FA has named members of the various committees to spearhead their activities with a department for the leagues yet to be formed.
The use of the amount our sources believes includes payment of participation fees to the clubs, officiating fees, management of the league, and setting up of a new league department to replace the Premier and Division one league boards.
Ghanaian clubs have not engaged in a well organised league since the #12 exposé in 2018, and the new administration is bent on starting a new league before the year ends.
